Magnificent chronicle of mismanagement
The recording has high production values, an understandable pace, and a good narrator. This is a part of the Civil War that I find fascinating- before either army really gets its act together and figures out how to coordinate the movement of seventy thousand or a hundred thousand soldiers. Sears is particularly effective in chronicling McClellan's deteriorating state of mind and its brutal effects on the Army of the Potomac. But nobody really shines in this chronicle- even Lee, who had not yet developed his style of command to an effective level.

Felt like being a eyewitness to the actual battle
One quiet day I sat in a reclining chair with a cup of coffee and begin listening to this book and soon found myself transported to being a spectator and even some sense A participant in the Battle. The detail, first person narrative at times, flowing description, from one phase of the battle to the next enthralled me. I greatly enjoy Stephen sears is near to skill, Nelson Runger’s Voice, and a felt sense of personal connection to the American Civil War. Stephen sears is Gettysburg and the peninsula campaign, Bruce Catton read by Nelson Runger also deserve the highest appreciation for a listening experience that surpasses 99% of what’s on TV. I am in Audible junkie and love audible product. I’m sure I have over 200 books on audio because I get a form of pleasure and enjoyment in meaning from this experience that I can’t find anywhere else. I particularly enjoy listening when I’m on a long drive and all lonely highway with a little traffic.
Gratefully yours, Paul
